In the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra has announced the department’s willingness to do whatever possible to help women procure abortions.
At the press conference today, Beccera said multiple times that all options are being considered, including tax-funded transportation to states with legal abortion. When questioned on the legality of idea, Becerra jokingly put it aside almost as an afterthought.
We know legality and Constitutionality are not concerns of the Biden administration. In the coming weeks and months, what kind of extreme, unconstitutional measures will the Biden administration unroll in retaliation against this life-saving Supreme Court decision? Time will tell, but one thing we know for sure— “nothing’s off the table.”
